Knee Replacement Surgery Performed Near Middletown, KY

Orthopedic physician examining patient's painful knee

Is knee pain interfering with your active lifestyle or everyday mobility? If so, it may be time to consider knee replacement surgery, especially if you have severe discomfort that does not respond to conservative treatments such as medication and physical therapy. The source of your pain may well be osteoarthritis, a common condition that gradually develops along with the natural aging process. Osteoarthritis of the knee can cause varying degrees of discomfort ranging from a minor inconvenience to life-altering anguish.

Why Is Knee Osteoarthritis So Common?

Although osteoarthritis can affect joints throughout the body, it frequently develops in the hardworking and weight-bearing knee joint. Due to ongoing stress, the cartilage that cushions and protects the ends of the bones in the joint can gradually break down and wear away, leading to painful bone-on-bone contact. In response, the body may produce bone spurs, which cause joint stiffness that adds to the discomfort.

If you’re ready to take the next step toward overcoming your knee pain, you are encouraged to talk with a board-certified, fellowship-trained orthopedic knee surgeon at Louisville Orthopaedic Clinic near Middletown, Kentucky. Together, you can determine if a knee replacement is the right option for you.

The Gold Standard Treatment for Knee Osteoarthritis

One of the most frequently performed joint replacement procedures in the world today, total knee replacement surgery is widely regarded as the gold standard treatment for osteoarthritis of the knee. Today’s advanced surgical techniques and implants offer many well-documented advantages in terms of pain relief, improved function, and enhanced quality of life. In essence, the procedure entails removing damaged bone and cartilage from the knee joint and inserting an artificial joint (prosthesis) made of metal alloys, high-grade plastics, and polymers in its place.

The surgeons at Louisville Orthopaedic Clinic perform customized knee replacement surgery using the latest minimally invasive techniques and robotic assistance as appropriate. When performed by a well-trained and experienced orthopedic surgeon, a knee replacement procedure can produce an outstanding result.
